Overview

The beautiful, child-friendly island of Grenada is a wonderful destination for family holidays, with its large national park, some of the finest dive sites in the southern Caribbean, one of the prettiest towns in the West Indies, and waterfalls and other spectacular scenery to explore by hired jeep.

Things to do with kids in Grenada

Snorkel. The beaches here receive regular visits from lots of different kinds of fish. Younger kids enjoy exploring the rockpools. Or check out the Underwater Sculpture Park, a submarine gallery of contemporary art created with eco-friendly intent, to relieve the pressure divers inflict on the natural reefs. You can see it by scuba-diving or snorkelling, or from a glass-bottomed boat.

Visit St George’s, one of the loveliest towns in the entire Caribbean, with a gorgeous harbour area and a bustling small town just behind it.

Try river-rafting on the Balthazar, a 45-minute drive from St George's; kids aged 5+ can take part.

Walk in the Grand Etang National Park taking up much of the centre of the island – it's incredibly green and lush, with lakes, waterfalls and monkeys.

Head for the glorious 11km stretch of white sand that is Grand Anse Beach, where it’s easy to find your own space. Seek out the little coves along the coastline, backed by palm trees where you can relax in the shade while the kids play.

Eat

Fresh fish is a child-friendly speciality of restaurants on Grenada, but hotels offer Western favourites for fussy eaters and, if you choose self-catering accommodation, you'll find it easy to get hold of familiar brands and foods. Don't miss a cone of the local soursop and nutmeg ice cream.

When to go to Grenada

Grenada is at its best between Christmas and Easter, when temperatures are high and you'll rarely see rain. In December, May and June you can get better prices but the weather is still great. July–November can be too wet and humid.

Cost

Budget about £3000-4000 for two-week family holidays in Grenada, with flights but without food, for four people. Self-catering can considerably cut costs as well as offering greater flexibility.
